My travel and accommodation expenses for July 2012 were as follows:
Hotels – I stayed 8 nights in hotels in London with a total cost of £833, average cost £104 per night compared to a limit of £150.
Train fares – I made 3 single journeys to/from London with total cost of £99, average return journey cost of £66. The maximum claim per return journey under the rules is £146. The journeys were all standard class except one advance first class fare.
Tube fares – £13
Car parking at East Midlands parkway station – £51
Mileage claim – £57
I claimed for one taxi from East Midlands Airport to East Midlands Parkway station. The cost was £12.35. This was due to a return flight from Belfast on Northern Ireland Affairs committee business. There is no bus link.
The full details of the claims are published by IPSA.
